Get 5GB of free cloud storage using SugarSync for Android, the iPad or iPhone.

I recently read about SugarSync which is another “cloud based” backup/sync service available with free accounts of 5GB. It is available on a variety of different platforms: Windows, Mac OS, Linux, Android, the iPad and iPhone, Windows Mobile and the Blackberry.

The concept of course is very similiar to Dropbox, but offers more robust features and the ability to set multiple folders on a desktop for use much like a Dropbox folder. A note to the paranoid: SugarSync is not as secure as DropBox in that the file contents are encrypted after arriving to SugarSyncs’ servers via SSH connection. So if security is a primary concern for you (or your clandestine organisation) in my view you should investigate SpiderOak or Wuala.

If you prefer ease of use and features slightly more sophisticated for cloud based storage – signup for a free SugarSync account. Next tap or click the links below to download a client for your target platform.

Verdict: Get SugarSync for the iPad and iPhone here, and Android Market devices here.
